  1. Honestly, I know Duma has been slow in its updates and struggled at times but everyone has a fair chance of being picked for the first batch of testers, in fact streamers might not always be the best to test the beta so a good selection of average users is a good starting point.
  2. Sky is a bit of a pain for using third party routers at times and they don’t like it either. Saying that it’s more than possible to try and get the 500 working better. Ping plotter is one way of getting your bufferbloat sorted but if you post for help under the XR series forum sub section perhaps others who use Sky may chip in with some tips as well.
  3. Don’t worry, streamers are not picked for who they are, trust me they pick users fairly. You may get picked yet as one of the smaller group to try it out. I know you want to see it in action and understand it’s been a long wait but keep your spirits up and see what happens. if you are struggling post for help and let’s see if we can get your 500 performing better. Are you by any chance on BT?
  4. It’s now a waiting game for you. Just relax and wait, at some point if you read their blog everyone will get a chance but they are keeping it for a small number to start with as it would be a tad crazy if say 100 beta testers went for it at the same time.
  5. Oh dear, you don’t really want to do that. The idea is to pick testers, you will also agree to a NDA Which means it can’t be talked about on a public forum.
  6. Assumption is the mother of well you know what. Hoping you get a go.
  7. It’s Netgear who will release this so it’s going to be probably based on their time scale.
  8. Nope because it would have been posted for all to see and try hence the sign up.
  9. It might be a case of waiting to see if you have been selected. Don’t forget as a Beta if chosen it will take place behind closed doors and nothing can be discussed publicly.
  10. Any beta will have to be a separate download and only beta testers will have access to this. Did you sign up?
  11. When did you purchase the R1? @Netduma Alex @Netduma Fraser message Alex or Frazer and they should be able to help.
  12. That’s a bit out of date. All those were fixed by firmware. I doubt you have been hacked. Don’t put your router in DMZ.
  13. Well I can’t really help you. This router is a combination of NG and Netduma, so firmwares are supplied under one roof. I would suggest if you don’t have luck with this router maybe try a nice basic one that’s easier to understand. You clearly don’t understand low level coding which needs clearing at times.still that’s routers, if you want SNB is a good site to learn why a reset is required. I’ll let you google that as it’s good for you to research yourself for more understanding. you should do more research and perhaps read the manuals from support so you understand a bit more about the XR routers. Good luck.
